Fair meal in class

CHILDREN at Giffnock primary were queuing up to eat their greens during the school’s healthy eating day.

A number of activities were set up for pupils to put a bit of fun into eating well.

The highlight of the day was a fashion show — with primary seven youngsters modelling clothes made entirely of Faitrade food.

Eve Thomson (11) who sportedjewellery made from pasta, told The Extra: “I might use it again although I’m not sure.; I’ll dress up in food too “It was a lot of fun though”.

Pupils also had the chance to make their own soup and they were challenged to create healthy pizza by adding as many vegetables as possible.

Children from throughout the school were involved, with primary one pupils learning how to make fresh fruit cocktails, and primary two students learning to plant and grow their own food.
